Yorkshire latest: Redfearn disappointed; Wednesday star defends May

We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Sheffield United.

Redfearn disappointed

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn was frustrated that his side's unbeaten home run under him came to an end this weekend. 

The Whites had not lost previously under Redfearn's stewardship at Elland Road, but a 1-0 defeat to Fulham left that record in tatters. 

“It’s really disappointing because we’d got to that stage where we had some momentum at home,” Redfearn said to the Yorkshire Evening Post

“We’ve had some good results, some good performances and we’ve been scoring goals but it turned and it didn’t quite happen. We didn’t quite reach the same heights.”

May defended

Tom Lees has defended his teammate Stevie May after the striker was guilty of missing a host of chances in a defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

The Scotland international has struggled for goals since joining the Owls this summer, but Lees was not blaming the mis-firing front-man for the loss. 

"We are all behind Stevie," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "No one is getting on his back or having a a go at him. We give each other constructive criticism.

“We have got every faith in Stevie and Attey [Nuhiu]. That’s not an issue. No one is falling out over the lack of goals."

Evans scouting

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans admits that he is on the look out for a goalscorer, but he thinks that it will take some extensive scouting.

The limitations in the Millers' budget means that Evans does not have the options available to him that other Champions bosses do, but the boisterous manager is convinced that he can find the striker to end his side's struggles. 

“We would all love a goal-scorer but in this league they come at a real premium don’t they," he said to the Yorkshire Post.

“If you want to pay £25,000 per week then you will get a goal-scorer. We are not that type of club so we are going to have go and find one that we believe can do it.”

Clough on attacking approach

Nigel Clough was fairly pleased with Sheffield United's new-found attacking style against Fleetwood Town this weekend.

Although the Blades only managed to pick up a 1-1 draw against Fleetwood, Clough found the link-up between his two strikers impressive. 

"We want to be a bit more positive, so we sacrificed the width and got the ball forward quicker at times," he told the Yorkshire Post

“We were pleased with the first-half performance, perhaps our formation surprised Fleetwood.

“Against certain opposition it might work, against others it won’t, but at least it gives us another dimension.”
